Luka Modric is set to disappoint a host of English clubs by staying at Dinamo Zagreb.

The Croatian schemer is believed to have attracted the interest of both Chelsea and Manchester City with both clubs reportedly weighing up a move for Modric in the January transfer window. "Modric is definitely staying another year,' said Mamic. "We rejected offers from some of the top clubs in England and Spain of up to £35m.

"We want him to stay to maintain our chances in Europe."
